You can submit Entry Summary Declarations by either:

  • purchasing compatible software
  • employing the services of a Community System Provider

Purchasing compatible software

What to do if the S&S GB service is unavailable

Economic Operators and Community System Providers should continue to send messages to the S&S GB service until HMRC confirm it is available again. These messages will be queued until the system is restored.

If you cannot send messages to the S&S GB service during the outage, you should send an entry summary declaration retrospectively when the S&S GB service is restored.
